Dr. Anderson's New Book: "What's Your Worldview?"
January 29, 2014
How Do You View the World?
It’s a big question. And how you answer is one of the most important things about you.
Not sure what you’d say? Join James Anderson on an interactive journey of discovery aimed at helping you understand and evaluate the options when it comes to identifying your worldview. Cast in the mold of a classic “Choose Your Own Adventure” story, What’s Your Worldview? will guide you toward intellectually satisfying answers to life’s biggest questions—equipping you to think carefully about not only what you believe but why you believe it and how it impacts the rest of your life.

“I can think of readers to whom I would not
give this book: they like their reading material to be straightforward
exposition. The notion of an interactive book, where readers are forced
to choose distinguishable paths and interact with discrete lines of
thought, finding their own worldviews challenged—well, that does not
sound very relaxing, and it may be a bit intimidating. But James
Anderson has written something that is as creative as it is unusual: he
has written a book in clear prose and at a popular level that
nevertheless challenges readers to think, and especially to identify and
evaluate their own worldviews. If the style is akin to ‘Choose Your Own
Adventure’ books, the content is at least as entertaining and far more
—D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“This book will become ‘the book’ that will be used by campus ministers, students, and a host of others who are constantly being drawn into conversations concerning worldviews. The layout of this book is ingenious, helpful, and engaging. The information found in these short pages will provide accurate long-term care for those on a ‘worldview journey.’”
—Rod Mays, National Coordinator, Reformed University Fellowship
“James Anderson’s What’s Your Worldview
is a delightfully innovative apologetic. I know of nothing like it. It
gets the reader to interact by asking crucial worldview questions.
Depending on the reader’s answers, he is led to further questions, or to
a conclusion. Animating the journey is a cogent Christian apologetic,
showing that only the Christian worldview yields cogent answers to the
questions. Anderson’s approach is both winsome and biblical, as well as
being the most creative apologetic book in many years. I pray that it
gets a wide readership.”
—John M. Frame, J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
“Thanks to James Anderson for
filling a massive gap in apologetics and worldview thinking. This book
is unique in that it is wholly and broadly accessible to readers of any
background and educational level, and yet written by an accomplished
Christian philosopher. Written with wit, clarity, cogency and
simplicity, this book ingeniously guides the reader from a chosen
worldview to its implications. Urging the reader to connect the
conceptual dots of his own thinking, this book should lead its reader
either to turmoil or to truth. This will now be the first book on my
list for people who ask ultimate questions about Christianity and its
relationship to other ways of thinking. Get this book, read it, then get
more to give away to friends and family.”
—K. Scott Oliphint, Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
“What’s Your Worldview
offers a uniquely interactive approach to finding answers to life’s
biggest and most important questions. It makes identifying your
worldview, and perhaps replacing it with a better one, an enjoyable
—Tim Challies, blogger, Challies.com; author, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment
“For some time now, the church
has been in desperate need of an accessible and practical tool that
would help people evaluate the cogency and coherence of their
worldviews. Finally, with this new book, that need is being met. James
Anderson is one of the brightest new voices in the world of
philosophical theology. You will not want to miss this book.”
—Michael J. Kruger, President and Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte; author, Canon Revisited
